Farming background

I was born on a Hill Farm my Father was a sheep and beef farmer, breeding Exmoor Horn, Texel and Closewool Sheep and Devon Cattle. I spent my childhood years working on the farm learning from my Father, upon leaving school I became self-employed, working on large sheep and beef farms, lambing in excess of 2000 ewes and calving over 100 cows. I gained a lot of practical knowledge of what works and what doesnt with livestock, alongside this I did contract shearing all over the country, most months of the year. The last twenty years I have been Farm Manager on a Hill Farm, managing livestock and land, doing all aspects of farm repairs such as hedge laying and fencing. As the farm is adjacent to the common, we had common rights. I have experience of filling out single farm payment forms and HLS, registering with BCMS and sheep tagging and movement documents.
